It takes a very large cooling setup to cool an overclocked 9650.
You must not be able to read lately, look at my last reply again. :/

I don't know if you remember me having that phenom x3 but that is almost similiar to that quadcore.
And no I wouldn't be happy with that Slow, slower and the end full of fail. :/
It didn't take me long to realize the phenom series in general for the am2 am2+ was worthless pile of scrap metal.
Atleast I'll look for something in speed/specs and mainly price ranges before upgrading to the recently released cpus.

IIRC the chip you had was a Phenom 2, which by today's standards is actually still good, whether it's on AM2+ board or AM3. The only difference is DDR2 and DDR3. This guy bought a Phenom 1.

Either way, it doesn't matter. This guy already purchased his Phenom 1, which is still 3 cores better than what he had.
